UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Tickets for Penn State's opener at MetLife Stadium will go on sale April 22, the school has announced.
The Nittany Lions will meet Syracuse in New York's College Classic in East Rutherford, N.J. This year's meeting was first announced in 2010.
Tickets range in price from $75 to $175 and will go on sale Monday, April 22 at 10 a.m. EST.
Penn State will be playing at the Meadowlands for the first time in 13 years, when it faced USC in the 2000 Kickoff Classic at Giants Stadium.
The Penn State-Syracuse rivalry dates back to 1922. The Nittany Lions own a 42-23-5 on-field series advantage, winning the most recent games played in 2008 and 2009, respectively.
"We are thrilled with the opportunity to open the 2013 season in a fantastic venue like MetLife Stadium against Syracuse, a team that Penn State has more than 90 years of tradition with on the football field," said Penn State football coach Bill O'Brien in a statement.
"With nearly 30,000 Penn State alumni in the New York-New Jersey metro area, we are looking forward to playing in front of a passionate base of Penn State supporters. It will be exciting for our team to open the 2013 season in the same facility that will end the year by hosting Super Bowl XLVIII."
The teams met every season from 1944-90, but did not meet again until the 2008 game in the Carrier Dome.
